Continuing Life Processes Ecology and Evolution (2012)
|Author:||Rachel Heeney and Peter Sheperd|
The aim of Continuing Life Processes is to present material in a way that meets the needs of all groups of students, allowing them to understand the important principles of biology and how the scientific process works. The companion Workbook gives students extensive practice in answering biology questions from multiple choice, cloze activities and true/false exercises through to in-depth discussions and practical activities. Throughout this textbook there are cross-references to the associated Workbook, questions that will help students improve their understanding of the topics. The author team of Rachel Heeney and Professor Peter Shepherd write in their usual relaxed way in language that is accessible to all students while losing none of the academic rigour required at this level. Continuing Life Processes, Ecology and Evolution is the perfect follow on from the Year 12 offering from the same author team, Life Processes, Ecology and Evolution.
